Having taken their quirky, melodic hooks and vintage pop to the top of the charts worldwide, FUN. bring their live show to Auckland for the first time. The New York trio’s album Some Nights is multi-platinum around the world and they've just snapped up TWO Grammys - Best New Artist and Song of the Year for 'We Are Young'.
Ruby Frost’s 2012 debut album Volition has set the young Auckland alt-pop princess on a supernova trajectory. The album was produced by American synth maven Chris Zane and debuted at #5 in the local charts. Drawing on a wide palate of influences, from Björk and Michael Jackson to Air and Fleetwood Mac, Volition brought her songs to life in a neon tumult of beats, polished pop melodies, samples and sequins. Onstage Ruby Frost’s striking pastel hued hair and sparkling fashion ensembles will bring all the passion of great performance to the Edge One Night Stand.
Close to two years on from the release of their debut album Sugarpills, Auckland pop duo Kids Of 88 stepped back out with second album Modern Love in October. The album’s first single ‘Lala’ followed their monster hits ‘My House’ and ‘Just A Little Bit’ onto the national airwaves, making the end of year New Zealand Top 20 for 2013. And NZ Herald described KidsOf88’s latest single ‘The Drug’ as “hanging out to be a feelgood hit of the summer”.
When they first emerged, stiff and synthetic, in early 2008, everything Kidz in Space did was shrouded in absurdist mystery. They claimed, semi-convincingly, to be from another planet with a sound that melded the best of chart pop (the production) and hip hop (um, the rapping) in a manner so effortless as to sound somewhat alien. Their television debut saw them in what at first glance looked like spacesuits we quickly realised were totally home-made. Newly re-armed with Ashley Hughes’ superb transition from rapper to singer and the addition of drummer Ben Barter, Kidz in Space are now a fully fledged power pop machine that threatens to ignite the Edge One Night Stand.
New songs and old, hits are pouring out of these Kidz, just like Ruby, the other Kids (of 88) and the Grammy award winning FUN. boys, all promising – as we keep saying – to make this a night to go down in history.
